I don't get any read out from the bush box when I press the menu button, just channel numbers 0101.....which is how it always starts.

To be sure, change the batteries in the remote, do you then get it to respond?
Customer: replied 2 years ago.
Have recently changed batteries in both remotes....

It is the internal memory then in the Bush recorder that has faulted.
A corrupted firmware can cause this. But we have ruled this out by trying to reinstall it. The fact that we cannot get to the recovery window, confirms it is the memory that shorts out, and causes the device to stall.
I am really sorry about this and you are going to have to return the unit to have it replaced. It will be covered by the warranty if this has not expired, and the replacement will be done at no cost to you.
I am really sorry about this, and if you have problems, or would like any additional information or assistance, please do not hesitate to let me know.
And if you can take a second to rate my service, that would be greatly appreciated.
Thank you
